Worth a try: I'll bet it has no effect. I'm going to assume that you've cut down the caffeine and are not a smoker. PVC's are very common and very seldom mean anything. If you have not yet tried running a few miles a day, or otherwise spending maybe an hour doing aerobic exercise, please give that a try. I'll bet it helps the PVC's by increasing vagal tone, and even if it doesn't, it'll help feel / look good
